Tabletop Exercises

Our Tabletop Exercises are individually tailored to meet the specific data protection needs of each client. LIFARS experts identify and interview essential personnel to understand your company’s distinct capabilities and existing contingency plans, then use this information to formulate a custom data-breach scenario based on our real-world experience.

Preparing for Cyber Incidents

Tabletop exercises are crucial in determining, whether incident response (IR) plan is working and whether it contains all elements necessary for successful IR and incident handling. Before testing your IR plan by performing tabletop exercises, we recommend performing a review of the plan to find out any possible weak spots. In addition, there are legal, contractual, regulatory and normative requirements for IR plan that may be applicable

Simulate cyber emergency incidents to evaluate your organization’s key personnel, and processes.  During the simulation we provide your incident response team with the opportunity to hone the practical skills they will need to confront inevitable real-world threats. Your team will recognize the nature and extent of the data breach, conduct triage to understand the impact to your organization and data, make collaborative decisions about containing the evolving threat, and identify the notifications necessary to satisfy pertinent regulations. A detailed report documenting the event explains our findings and highlights improvements to your cybersecurity and incident response readiness.
